Submission + - Apple's XCode IDE Is No Longer Free (apple.com) 1

GlobalEcho writes: Apple has historically made its development tools available free to anyone willing to register on their website and wait for a 1GB download. Starting with XCode 4, the software will cost $4.99 for anyone not already a paid member of their Registered Developer program ($99/year). The new version will now come as an App Store download.

Apple's XCode IDE Is No Longer Free

  • From reading various reviews (http://fireballed.org/linked/2011/03/09/xcode-pilkington/), I would guess that XCode 4 is a beta that non-registered developers can pay for the privilege of accessing.

I have a theory that it's impossible to prove anything, but I can't prove it.
